Convert Photos To PDF
Zilla JPG To PDF Converter is a program for Microsoft Windows devices to convert various image formats to Adobe PDF documents.
Note: The program was offered for free initially, but that is not the case any longer. You can use a free alternative such as Image to PDF Converter Free if you prefer free software.
Converting multiple photos or images into single PDF documents has several advantages. A single file can be stored and managed more comfortably, and it's also easier to distribute it without running into the problem of missing photos in the process.
One interesting use would be for instance to convert photos that have been taken on the last holiday into a single PDF document before sending it to friends and relatives.
Zilla JPG To PDF Converter
Zilla JPG To PDF Converter is a software program for the Windows operating system that has been designed for this exact purpose. It can be used to convert multiple photos to a single PDF document.
The process itself has been streamlined for ease of use. It actually takes less than a minute to configure the program to turn selected photos to a PDF file. The time it takes to create the pdf document itself depends largely on the number and quality of the selected photos, and the processing power of the computer system.
Only two steps are mandatory, and a few additional are optional. The mandatory steps are to add images or folders that contain images to the program's interface. This can be done using drag and drop, or by using the add buttons in the main toolbar. The other step that is mandatory is to click on the "convert to PDF now" button to start the actual conversion.
Optional steps include customizing the document title, author, creation date, subject, keywords, the output path and the compression quality.
The conversion creates a PDF document. Each of the selected images is shown on a page in the document, and all it takes to browse the images is to use a PDF viewer such as a modern web browser, Sumatra, or Adobe Reader.
Zilla JPG To PDF Converter is an easy to use program that can create pdf documents showing selected photos in no time.
The company responsible for it could improve it further by adding support for customizing the pages, for instance by adding text or other objects to individual pages. This could then be used to add information about each of the images for instance.
An option to select several photos from one folder simultaneously is also missing as it is only possible to either select one photo or a folder full of photos in the application.
The software program is available at the developer's website. It is available for most Microsoft Windows operating systems including Windows XP, Vista and Windows 7 (update: also compatible with Windows 8 and 10).
hi!but what is the advantage, compared to a zipped folder?
Well unless your image viewer can view the contents of zipped folders you have to open the images on by one. It is easier to send a pdf file to users as they know what to do with it than to send a zipped folder to them, in most cases anyway.
There’s absolutely no advantage when compared to using a “comic book” format like CBZ (zipped) or CBR (RARed); comic book viewers like CDisplay can view them as a sequential list of images, and opening them with a ZIP manager like IZArc or 7Zip (just change the extension from CBZ to ZIP, or CBR to RAR if you need to) will let you extract the images. Plus, most PDF file creators (Acrobat, or one of the dozens of PDF printer drivers available) resample the images, losing quality, and it is harder to extract the images (most extractors convert them to BMP files, meaning you will lose quality when you convert them back to JPG files).
If the person you’re sending the images to can’t handle a ZIP file, they probably won’t be able to do much with the images anyway.
YOu could drag a bunch of photo’s into Word and then save as PDF also. Plus you would be able to annotate the photo’s and add other effects in Word also.
JoJo that’s actually a good point that you make. Was not there an update that you need to install to add pdf export?
Martin – The update was needed to do a direct PDF save from Word 2007.
But you could also do whatever you want to do in Word and then do a standard PRINT to PDF using one of the many softwares that do this.
I’ve ever used an Images To PDF converter named Tweak PDF converter 4.0. And it works perferct, all in all it’s easy to use and useful.
